of the excel ie license. ari, the fact that romney is still desperately trying to find a zinger from the president's speech indicates there's a problem, isn't there? he's just not winning. >> it is a bad sign if you're playing these kind of word games this close to the end. you want to be making a big, bold closing argument. that's not what you're seeing from the romney campaign. you're seeing a lot of spinning. you're seeing talk about pennsylvania. you're seeing talk about these quotes and obviously what the president meant was, if you have a feeling of revenge, if you're feeling excited, make sure to go out and do your civic duty, that's what counts. i mean, it's such a reach and so silly to try to take that and turn it into something else. but that's where they're at right now. >> so it's an act of desperation? >> i think so. i think the problem for mitt romney here is, look at ohio, right? talk about a dispute over jobs and facts and he is losing. if you go on twitter, i mean, i was doing #romneyohioclips as the hash tag and the obama campaign and others were circulated today. n

to domestic politics. i'm joined by correspondent for the nation and msnbc contributor ari melber who has some thoughts about upcoming democraticic legislative efforts aimed at breaking the gridlock in washington. >> thanks. this week president obama gave his first news conference since being reelected in which he urged congress to act on a very big issue, immigration reform. >> this is not historically been a partisan issue. we've had president obama and john mccain and others who have supported comprehensive immigration reform in the pass. so we need to seize the moment. >> but a majority in congress has already seized the moment and stood up for immigration reform. in the house, a majority passed the dream act in 2010, and in the senate 54 senators backed it. the dream act is not law because it was filibustered by the republican minor. the filibuster of course is the opposition's weapon of choice. so enacting any big legislation in the future may require some big changes to the filibuster itself. now in the last congress, senate democrats tried to enact filibuster reform, but they didn't ge

to our panel now. ari melber is with me here in new york. he's a correspondent of "the nation." msnbc political analyst karen finney is former communications director at thed nc and professor michael eric dyson of georgetown university joins us. karen, the bloviating irnor ray muss may be changing his stripes. donald trump recently sat down for an interview and i can inform you he says republicans are going to have a hard time winning elections if they come across as, get this, mean-spirited toward people of color. treating voters with respect may seem as obvious to you and i as night follows day, but at least it's a start, isn't it? >> i suppose it's a start. >> give the man some credit. >> why should -- this guy is supposed to be so smard and we should give him credit for stating the obvious? i don't think so. i think i'm going to continue to believe he's a bloviating ignoramus we shouldn't be paying any attention to. >> ari, as we come on air now for this segment, the president is actually meeting at this very moment for a photo opportunity with the president-elect of mexico. and m

the prime aries. here's gary tuchman. >> reporter: this is not the scene most supporters of the tea party envisioned or desired. barack obama was supposed to be a one term president. >> liberty, yes. obama care, no. liberty, yes. obama care, no. >> reporter: a primary mission of the tea party, get the government out of people's lives. there was even an african-american led chapter in south-central l.a. complete with a sign at one rally that read tea party supports mlk's dream. >> i see today that fidel castro likes obama care but we don't like obama care. doesn't that kind of tell you something? >> reporter: there was a lot of passion but also problems. there was christine o'donnell running for senate in delaware. years earlier, she had told bill maher she had dabbled in witchcraft and she delivered this line in a political ad. >> i'm not a witch. >> reporter: not only did she lose but some say this was an early sign of problems the gop would later have with untested tea party candidates. there were many other notable tea partiers in the limelight that year. sharon engle running for senat

's remember that. >> ari, you said you interviewed president obama. you said there was a very flattering profile. do you think that there is a -- is the support that exists within israel for him because he's a wonderful person or because you just think at the oepd testify day he'd support israel more strongly? >> first of all, he didn't share your view. the romney people did not think that the interview was flattering at all as it had some reservations about his charisma and strength of his personality. it's true what came across in the interview is something the americans saw in the debates which is that the man is no demon and, no, he's not nothing, and that was a very interesting experience to see that there was a certain exaggeration in the way he was perceiving the criticism of romney and once meeting him you could see that. i think that romney's failure isn't projecting a clear message and real stremgt and there was something vague just like on the american poll sichl there was something vague and not very powerful regarding his statements about the middle east and the burning issu

in new york is msnbc contributor ari, also correspondent for "the nation," in chicago political analyst jonathan coulter, and in pennsylvania, lehigh university professor james peterson. ari your piece in "the nation" today calls the president's win a decisive victory for liberal government. what do you mean? >> i mean that when president obama took office, we had just experienced, if we can think back on it, a profound failure of both government and elite institutions from iraq, foreign policy to finances to the response to hurricane katrina. what president obama did when he came into office was strongly and unapologetically assert the government's role in dealing with our problems. in a wide array of he car market, small businesses, tax reform. he that at great personal, political risk. and what he got back in return was, a very strong attack on the notion that we're in this together and that government has a role to play. first in the grass roots of the tea party on the ground and then in the air in what you documented, martin, and what the audience knows, one of the most well-funded

john king, also political analyst david gergen, gloria borger. ari fleischer, an occasional unpaid political adviser for the romney campaign. paul begala senior adviser for president obama's senior pac. i want you to listen to a clip and get your response. the first one from 2009 and one from just last thursday. take a look. >> a year from now, i think people are going to see we're starting to make some progress, there's going to be some pain out there. if i don't have this done in three years, there's going to be a one-term proposition. >> now, we knew from the beginning that our work would take more than one year or even one term, because let's face it, the middle class was getting hammered long before the financial crisis hit. >> wow, he looks older. clearly, difference in message there. >> big time. in his defense, the best economist and business people didn't know how deep the hole was when he came in. >> speaking of big time, were you quoting george bush? >> it's a texas thing. >> go ahead. >> he came in, the hole was far deeper than he or anyone knew. i don't think anyone kn

party groups to be on the program, they declined. joining me now, former white house press secretary ari fleischer, unpaid occasional communications adviser to the romney campaign. also van jones, former special advisor to the obama white house. ari, what about that? is the tea party to blame for fielding some candidates who weren't ready for prime time, for some of the problems the republican party is having, or what? >> well, it's complicated and it varies from state to state. frankly, in missouri, where todd akin was a horrible candidate and said foolish, foolish things, he wasn't the tea party candidate. he actually ran against two tea party endorsed candidates. they split the vote. he walked into the middle of it. so akin was more your traditional social conservative wing of the party. i don't think he's a traditional tea partier. and in 2010, the tea party's record was terribly mixed. they brought us on the one side marco rubio and senator ron johnson. to their credit. they defeated moderates. rubio defeated a moderate. he's a stellar senator. on the other hand, they brought us chr

to our panel. here in new york joy reid is the managing editor of msnbc contributor ari melber is a columnist for "the nation." and in washington msnbc contributor jared bernstein, a senior fellow and former economist for vice president joe biden. ari, if i can start with you, let's set aside for the moment the racism and the contempt for his fellow americans. don't these kind of views ethically disqualify someone for the highest office in the land? i mean, e dee amin had a warmer attitude toward his electorate and he is said to have eaten some of them. >> i didn't expect the cannibalism right out of the gate. i agree with your premise, what kind of view not only of government but of society is this? you go out and ask the people who have fema helping them respond to the hurricane, you ask them if they're getting gifts? you know, you ask people who look to our cops and our firefighters and our soldiers and our teachers -- >> many of whom's life savings have been invested in properties and have lost everything through no fault of their own. >> right. you ask them what we

-host of the cycle and ari melber. do you think in a maybe the american people and democrats, i think the democrats want to do something about this. is there any way to shame republican leadership into doing this, crystal? >> well, probably not, though i think if the american people get upset enough about any issue and make any issue hot enough, you can make a change. i would point to our home state of virginia. republicans took over the state senate, they held the house of delegates, trying to push through this extreme legislation, and eventually they went too far, mandating transadvantagible probes. people in virginia got upset, even though ropes controlled every level of government, they still had to pull back that bill. so anything is possible, but i think the big thing here is it's very unusual and it's very bad idea to have partisan officials in charge of elections at all. >> how do we fix this? is this going to take a federal law? the president said we need to fix this. you're not going to fix it on a state level. this is with all these state houses, seen it in ohio, seen it in florida. i me

and ari melber. stop being the stupid party. that's a tall order now for the republicans, isn't it? >> yeah. bobby jindal, i guess he has coherent advice. i am not sure if you look at his stance, teaching creationism in public schools, not sure he is going to help them in his own state, and it's interesting that paul ryan sort of made these assertions that we didn't really lose, we actually won because the house of representatives, he made a good point. look at florida. all of the republicans in swing districts, people who were the most associated with paul ryan's ideas, people like allen west, for instance, lost. they lost in those swing districts because those guys, especially west, who really championed paul ryan's ideas, went to bat for them, did town halls, contentious town halls defending the ryan budget he voted for twice. well, he lost. >> ari, it is not as if the president had a great economy to run on. what he had to run on is if you elect me, this is what i'm in favor of, this is what i will do, and he got to say this is what the republicans will do if you elect them, an

're not correct, ari, that it didn't work. it worked just not as effectively as everyone wanted it to work. but as paul said, we do need infrastructure. we know we ran sort of a "d" in the world on pretty much everything, transportation, water, internet, things like that. what if it were an infrastructure bank, which is an idea that republicans would support. there would be some government money in it, but it is almost like seed money, a portion, and we have really fixed up where it wouldn't be like stimulus with weird assignments for money and you don't know what they are doing. real jobs for real infrastructure -- >> you better shovel those jobs. >> the private sector would invest in and profit from these -- >> this was in president obama's jobs bill which didn't get passed. he didn't talk about it much in the campaign. we talk about it more than he does. this could be really bipartisan and really work. >> chicago has one. the major of chicago has one now, it is new, but it is working. i believe it will work. nancy pelosi called for this years ago. it is actually -- it should be bipartis

, let's bring in our partisan pros. ari fleischer and eric erickson. on the left, obama 2012 pollster cornel belcher. paul, let's start with u everybody is focused on ohio. do you see a road map for mitt romney if he does not win ohio? >> no. no. romney has -- i'm not a big fan of the electoral college but the founding fathers gave it to us. romney has a much, much tougher map. if you begin as you should presuming he will carry every state john mccain did, then he still needs indiana, which he'll almost -- he's very strong in, very likely to win. north carolina which is easier than many of the other swing states but not in the bag. then it gets hard. he's got to have ohio. even if he gets ohio, get this, he's got to still win virginia or florida -- and florida, colorado. it's so hard for him to get to 270. without ohio, it's almost impossible. >> cornel, do you see this boiling down to the electoral college versus the popular vote? >> i think it is going to be electoral college. one of the interesting things, i think you'll see a tighter race state by state. on average, we won the bat
Nov 19, 2012 9:00am PST
to new york for a second. ari, president obama, a lot is made of his speech in cairo at the beginning of his tenure as first term. that was a different middle east in many ways. i mean hosni mubarak was still there, every assumption he would remain there. to the degree that the sands are shifting under his feet he's trying to focus american policy at a time when the middle east is as sort of -- the situation is as contentious as it ever has been, how much blame can we put on the president's shoulder for not being able to foresee this and develop an adequate foreign policy? >> this is a predicament of every u.s. president, the world has very high expectations for us. often they want us to get out of their lives, to stop using drones to kill their civilians. essentially go away. but when you are the sole super power going away itself has repercussions. we're seeing that here with a vacuum, with the muslim brother hood and morsi, playing a peace broker role without any peace that people feel the u.s. should be a bigger leader on. i think there is a marker here from the cairo speech and f
